WOYWW 416 - background? 30/100


Today is Wednesday, awalys a good day 
middle of the week 
and more importantly WOYWW day and a special one today, the 8th anniversary, congrats Julia!!!
On top of that, I'm on the verge of a long weekend,
and the weather is fabulous, this Sunday up to 30°C.
So my desk is still set outside

my box with a selection of supplies is getting fuller and fuller each time :-)

While my son was playing in his new swimming pool I created this "background", 
I think it is more a finished page already,
just need to add some words, a quote and done.

I always like to see the progress a page makes, so here it is

Can't promise it will be today that I'll visit, but definitely somewhere in the next coming days.


  1. I like the idea of outdoor crafting, sounds perfect! Happy WOYWW Helen #2

  3. I would love to be able to craft outside, but the rain and high winds don't allow me to do so. You are SO lucky. Happy 8th Anniversary from # 1.

  4. Woohoo, summer's on its way! I think it's going to get up to 30 here as well this normally rains on a Bank Holiday in the UK! The master board is great, think the colours reflect that you were working outside :-D

  5. Hi Vicky. Imagine, crafting outside - mind you, that's where I should be today.. working in the garden... but just couldn't miss today! Happy 8th WOYWW anniversary. Thank you for showing the steps on that page - I admit to being intrigued by the fact that you put all the letters on the page and then covered most of them up. The end result is great, though. Like it.
    Take care. God bless.

  6. Good morning my friend and a very happy 8th year anniversary. What a wonderful group we are part of.
    How lovely to see you crafting in the sunshine.

  7. Always nice to craft outside. I've put up the insect nets at the door of my shed so that I can craft with the door open. Thanks for the step by step pictures, I love to see how pages develop. Sarah #27

  8. Hi Vicky, lovely to be able to craft outside. I'd spend too much time going up and downstairs for stuff I'd forgotten, lol. Nice to see the step by step in your project. Have a lovely week, Love and hugs,Shaz #7 XxX

  9. Hi Vicki, happy Woyww 8th Anniversary, like you I have been outdoors in the sunshine, but have to sort the garden before I do the craft! by which time it's just too hot ( our temperatures peak at 4pm) and I end up inside in the shade, not that i am complaining! Hope you have a lovely productive weekend and get a tan too... doone @23

  10. Is that flower motif a stamp? It's really beautiful!
    Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

  11. I am totally impressed you moved your creating out side. :)
    and that all the bits and pieces did not blow away. ~Stacy #42

  12. Fun process pics! I'm especially charmed by your use of those cute hearts. Inspires me! FYI Your link is a bit goofed up. It took me to your blog but to a page that offered nothing. If I had not clicked on your banner name, I'd never have found this #416 post.

    Happy WOYWW

    Hope your sunshine holds up, it is Saturday here and the sun has been replaced by rain and more forecast for tomorrow.

  20. Hi Vicky, It's really interesting to see how your page progressed.

    It's a shame paper and water don't mix, as to crafting the pool would have been perfect:)LOL

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    Happy WOYWW

  21. It looks so relaxing working outdoors, although for me 30 degrees is too hot for doing anything in! Love your sunshine-y work, it's definitely a bright summery piece. Thanks so much for visiting my desk, I hope you enjoy what's left of the week,
